Down the highway, down the tracks, down the road to ecstasy
I followed you beneath the stars, hounded by your memory
And all your ragin’ glory
I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now I’m finally free
I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above
And I’ll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love
And it makes me feel so sorry
Idiot wind, blowing through the buttons of our coats
Blowing through the letters that we wrote
Idiot wind, blowing through the dust upon our shelves
We’re idiots, babe
It’s a wonder we can even feed ourselves
— Bob Dylan, [Taken from] Idiot Wind
It’s a busy sky – and today marks the Solstice, bringing us to a significant turning point in our yearly journey through the cosmos.
Late yesterday Mars entered Gemini and squares Neptune in Pisces on June 22, 2011 — overnight in NYC, early Wednesday in UK and later in the day in India, Australia.
It may be hard to discern between truth and lies, fact and fiction. This aspect suggests plenty of fear, paranoia and confusion in the air. Any time Mars and Neptune make aspects we have to be especially wary of deceit and this would be enough to make anyone paranoid.
But the square suggests the most important thing to do now would be to resolve this internally and seek inner truth about what [or who] we “truly” desire, but are afraid to be honest about. The worst and most destructive lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
Currently the Moon is in Pisces moving towards a square with Venus at 10:22 PM EDT then she goes Void until 4:23 AM EDT on June 23, 2011, when she enters Aries reaching the Last Quarter phase.
With the Moon void all day tomorrow, go with the flow. The Mars-Neptune aspect will be waning, and we can expect the clouds to clear over the next day or so, bringing clarity as the Aries Moon moves us into action.
We are in the midst of a very potent Eclipse season, when time seems to accelerate bringing rapid transformation of events. Indeed the world has changed since we began the month with the Gemini Solar Eclipse on Jun. 1, 2011. Followed by the more recent Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 15, 2011, which brought deep truths to light.
This [Sagittarius] Eclipse was conjunct the North Node, pointing the way to destiny. It is what unfolds after the Eclipse that we learn the truth of a situation. So look back to the events of the past week and past few days.
If we can integrate what we’ve learned with integrity we can make healthier choices with the New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer next week on July 1, 2011.
